Intel Ensures Electric Cars for Ireland

Great news and an interesting collaboration was announced today in Ireland. Intel, who have a large presence in Ireland and the Irish energy provider the ESB have announced plans to roll out electric or ‘ecars’ in Ireland. The announcement occurred at the launch of electric charge points at the Intel Ireland campus in Leixlip.

Siliconrepublic commented that ESB ecars and Intel’s sustainability and enterprise services lab, which is part of Intel Labs Europe, have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on the challenges of integrating electric vehicles into the electricity grid.

The ESB plans to build a nationwide charging infrastructure to meet the Irish Government’s 2020 targets of 10% of all vehicles to be electric. The collaboration will support the planning and implementation of the nationwide charging infrastructure using the all-electric, Mitsubishi i-MiEV throughout Ireland
